Hi, first off IÂ´m glad that someone was able to pick up Sam & Max and we will finally see a new game. IÂ´ve been replaying the oldie now and then and when I heard that a new one is coming made a quick scene test using a screencap from the old game as concept. ItÂ´s quite low in polycount and the textures are just quickly done placeholders; I mostly wanted to see how itÂ´d look converted to 3d. Guess with decent textures and increased polycount the game can be quite the beauty in 3d.
My question now is how much work will you be able to put into the game? I know that good graphics donÂ´t equal a good game, but itÂ´s still important. Especially because I think Sam & Max gets much of its appeal out of the whacky looks and animation. Since I doubt you have the funding of a triple A title for the game, IÂ´d just like to know what the tradeoff will be. This is in no way meant offensive, I merely say that creating content takes time and you have budget and time limits after all.
Put short I think that would leave the question: When are we going to see the first screenshots? :)
HereÂ´s the images of the test I made, just in case anyone is interested.
edit: I just realized the images are wider than the forums standard width, I hope it is still ok to post them here. If not just change it to links. Thanks.
